July 19th 2017 Survive a few hours of cult hit The Surge in the new demo

The world took up the challenge to survive hardcore action-RPG The Surge from Deck13 for PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 4 Pro, Xbox® One, and PC when it launched in May, and now you can jump in too.

Play the game from the very beginning as you start your battle through CREO, a megacorporation that has been hit by a devastating catastrophe. The demo features hours of unlocked content, and progression will even carry over to the full game when you decide to continue the fight. You’ll pick up exactly where you left.

Before you embark on your journey of survival, watch the official Demo Release Trailer, focusing on the players' reactions as they take up the challenge, fighting with The Surge’s innovative loot system and directional limb-targeting to discover the truth about CREO.

Master positioning and speed, risk reward, as you slice, loot, and survive an industrial complex overrun by malfunctioning machines and discover mysterious machinations through its emphasis on environmental storytelling, placing the player in control of everything.

Naturally, the demo includes all of the critically acclaimed PS Pro features such as HDR and Dynamic 4K, as well as 60FPS in 1080p mode.

The Surge’s demo is available today on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and PC. Visit the official website for more info.

About the game

Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases. As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth’s citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency. The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization. The Surge features innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat.
